Conventional dipping techniques for components are based around submerging and removal from the liquor solely in the vertical plane. The project sought to confirm if improvement in film thickness and quality could be achieved through adoption of alternative dipping strategies including involving changes in speed, angularity and rotation to improve film thickness and uniformity.
Two new designs of dipping machines were developed, one around a robotic arm submersion technique and the other around a vertical linear travel submersion system, and a comparison was made against conventional dipping machines available in the university laboratory.
The prototype machines showed promise over the current dipping machine technology available in the lab at the university.
